IMPORTANT TIPS TO PREPARE CURRENT AFFIRS & GENERAL KNOWLEDGE (GK) FOR COMPETITIVE EXAMS


               We all know that most of the competitive exams come up with these two subjects, and most of the students feel great difficulties to score good marks in it...There is always something happening in this bloody big world, so it’s not easy to stay updated with all the latest affairs all the time...“CurrentAffairs” and “General Knowledge” cover many topics like from economy to sports or education to politics, or even technology to automobiles...

TIPS :

* READ NEWSPAPER REGULARLY :

It will be better if you read one newspaper of your mother language,and other of English. Some useful newspapers are “The Times of India”, “The Hindu”, “The Telegraph” etc...And most important it will increase your english word power.

* READ MAGAZINES :

There are many leading magazines that focus on current affairs and General Knowledge... Some of the useful magazines are Pratiyogita Darpan and Manorma...Some useful business magazines are Business Today, Business Line etc... 

* FOLLOW NEWS CHANNELS : 

Now most of the leading news channels are active for 24*7. You need to pick up a suitable time for yourself to watch any favorite news channel of yours. You can watch ABP News, NDTV, Times Now, ET Now, Zee News etc...

* MAINTAIN A DIARY :

My teacher used to tell me that whenever you learn something try to write it down in your diary, as it will help you to memorize it in a better manner. He is so right, as this method helped me a lot to score good marks in every exam that I appeared for. You need to update this diary on a daily basis with all the events that you consider as important ones.

* CHANNELIZE YOURSELF ACCORDINGLY :

All the competitive exams are not same, as all of them have different pattern, even when it comes to the same topic as ‘Current Affairs’ or ‘GK’.
For example for civil services exam, you need to give importance on events of National value.On the other scenario, in matter of bank job exam,the focus should be on the news on banking sectors, and economic and business news...

* USE INTERNET RESOURCES :

“Google, YouTube and Wikipedia are my favorite teachers’; one of my friends told me this once. This is quite true indeed, so you should use all the available online resources to study current affairs and GK for exams.

* USE SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES FOR GOOD :

Believe me or not you can surely use social networking sites to your benefits. Especially to prepare current affairs and General knowledge.
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and StumbleUpon may help you a lot...You can join our Facebook Page Knowledge Centre too for this matter.

* GIVE PRIORITY TO YOUR STRENGTH :

We need to first select our strength areas for our preparation. Try to give priority to your strength areas. It may be Sports, economy, Government Affairs or technology.
